Return to In-Person Learning - Starting March 16th

Dear CHS Families,

The Cloquet School Board has made the decision to bring our Cloquet High School students back to Full In-Person Learning starting on Tuesday, March 16th.  Here are some important notes as we begin this transition back to full in-person classes:

    1. No School on Monday, March 15th.  Cloquet High School will have no school in order to allow our teachers to prepare for the full in-person learning model shift.  

    2. Current Hybrid Students:  Students who currently attend either in the hybrid model or have been coming in everyday, will start back to Full In-Person Learning on Tuesday, March 16th. If you do not want your student to attend Full In-Person Learning you can opt for the Full Distance Model. We will not be offering a hybrid model. It is either Full In-Person or Full Distance Learning.  

      1. If you would like to switch your child to Full Distance Learning please fill out this form by Friday, March 12th or call the school at 218-879-3393 ext.1215.  

    3. Current Full Distance Students:  Students who are currently in a Full Distance Learning model can remain in Full Distance Learning OR can opt to come back to Full In-Person.  

      1. If you would like to immediately switch your child from Full Distance Learning to Full In-Person learning, please fill out this form by Friday, March 12th.

      2. After March 12th, students wanting to return to Full In-Person learning should call the main office to request a return to In-Person learning. It may take a couple of days to accommodate this request as we have to be vigilant about student schedules and record keeping so we can prepare for the possibility of contact tracing.    

 

  • Asynchronous Learning Days: 

  • In order to equitably attend to our Full Distance Learners, we will continue to have one asynchronous learning day per week.  For the remainder of quarter 3 it will be on Friday.

  • Starting after spring break (4th quarter) we will be switching our asynchronous learning day to Wednesday. There will be ONE exception to this and that is the week of April 12th, we will have our asynchronous day on Tuesday, April 13th. This is due to our juniors taking the ACT on 4/13 - this date is set by the ACT organization and is not something we can move.   

  • Health Reminders:  As COVID rates decline, we are excited to open our school and get back to doing the things that make high school special. HOWEVER, please remember the following things: 

  • It is still vitally important to pay close attention to any illnesses and symptoms you may be experiencing.  

  • PLEASE continue to screen yourself /your student each day before you walk out the door. Use this screening tool and stay home if you have any symptoms: https://bit.ly/3bveRyA   

  • If you have any questions on your symptoms - stay home and call your student's health office and they will guide you through the necessary procedure.

  • We are continuing following the decision tree for students and families with symptoms or positive diagnosis:  https://bit.ly/3cjCtW3 

  • If ANYONE in your household is pending a COVID test, DO NOT send your student to school until you have a negative test result.  

  • It is imperative we continue to follow all mitigation factors: 

  • We must still follow the mandatory mask rule - please wear it properly, up and over your nose: https://bit.ly/3bhbOtD 

  • Be sure your hand hygiene is a priority. Continue to wash hands and/or use hand sanitizer often.

  • MDH announced a recommendation for all school-age youth returning to school, youth sports, or extracurricular activities, and their families, to get tested every two weeks through the end of the school year. While it is not a requirement, regular testing complements other safety measures already in place, such as masking and social distancing. Resources are available at COVID-19 Testing for Kids and Families. Getting tested every two weeks from now until the end of the school year can help keep schools open and sports operating, and ensure we are limiting the spread of COVID-19.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Cloquet High School. We continue to encourage our families to check out the CHS webpage for up to date information:  www.isd94.org/highschool
